The polenta was outrageously delicious (guest said the best he'd ever tasted) and the rest of the dishes were wonderful as well. Our server, Helen, could not have been nicer. All in all, an exceptional night out that made us all smile.

On this evening, I enjoyed the delicious cod special that had something tasty with artichokes on top. My husband relished every morsel of the steak and lobster special (sharing a small taste with me) My brother-in-law enjoyed the calamari picatta and my sister-in-law had the Yvette salad - which she says she always orders when she comes here. We topped it off with a scrumptious cheesecake of the day and a chocolate sundae. It has been our experience that you can't go wrong with whatever you order.

The ambience and decor was reminiscent of small French country restaurants. We had the scallops with polenta and this was superb. Followed this with the calamari piccata, a generous portion, though the sauce was a bit heavy and had perhaps too many capers, making it a bit salty. The petite fillet with mushroom & red wine sauce was cooked to perfection. They have lots of choices for sides that come with each dish. Go for polenta cakes or mash potatoes. And ask for sautéed veggies to replace typical sides. Overall we had a delightful time.

He had the bouillabaisse with a cup of french onion soup, my husband had the pork chop special and I had the calamari picatta with the sparrow salad. Everything was outstanding and delicious. And the service was 5 star.

Of course we didn't have to order 2 bottles of $70+ wine, but the food, the company and the delightful intimate setting was a PERFECT setting for a much needed wag over our book club's latest pick. I had the special Chinook Salmon and it was done perfectly with a jalepeno pesto sauce. YUM! Annie, our server was EXCEPTIONAL (friendly, attentive, responsive and courteous).

The menu choices are authentically French. We asked for a paper copy of the menu for this review, but they had run out. The on line version differs a little from the menu that night. We had the Caesar Salad and asked for extra anchovies. There were no anchovies. The soup of the evening was a corn chowder, and it was more like a vegetable soup than corn chowder. The best dishes were the Rack of Lamb and the Pink Peppercorn Shrimp (an appetizer that we had as a main, with added vegetables. The restaurant is charming looking, like a French inn. It is small, therefore it was very noisy. If you are hungry for French Onion Soup or other French standards, this is a good place to come. Perhaps for lunch.

We were served by Milla- I think that was her name and she was great. Her suggestions were spot on. She is so friendly and bubbly and that made the experience perfect. The food was as always great and the Salmon was excellent and cooked perfectly. While we were full we went with the desserts and they to were delicious. It is so nice they have small portions available for those that just want a bit more to finish off a terrific meal. Love this sweet restaurant.

Then we shared wild salmon on top of a fruit salsa and a ribeye steak with mushrooms. Both were so flavorful, well seasoned and perfectly cooked (medium!). Our only recommendation would be to take a bit more effort with the presentation - but the quality of the food and the attentive service make this a 5-star experience. And did I mention the awesome bread pudding for dessert???

Private events require a buyout of the entire restaurant and are appropriate for parties of 40 - 60 people. Semi private events are available in our lower dining room for parties of 25 - 35 people. The menus can be designed around your event. Cafe Sparrow is a great venue for a rehearsal dinner, small wedding, holiday party, retirement party or other business event.
